National AFSCME Retirees News

Protect your pension and benefits by joining Ohio-West Virginia AFSCME Retirees today!

Ohio-West Virginia AFSCME Retiree Chapter 1184 is leading the charge to protect our retirement security from politicians in Columbus, Charleston, and across the country who threaten it every day.

Your pension and state benefits are the bedrock of your retirement security. A strong pension along with Social Security and Medicare allow us to retire with dignity and peace of mind. By becoming a member for just $36 a year, you can help us stand up against these attacks and ensure that we have a dignified and secure retirement.

In your working life, you had a strong union -- AFSCME. Now, let AFSCME Retirees be your retirement union.

The Government Pension Offset (GPO) and the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) have been unfairly impacting the Social Security benefits of some public service retirees. Because of GPO-WEP, 25% of public service retirees see cuts to their Social Security due to other earnings or pensions. Some retirees have even had their Social Security benefits cut to zero.

We won't stand for cuts to Social Security for anyone. Send a letter to your members of Congress and tell them to fully repeal GPO-WEP.

Connecticut Rep. Jahana Hayes recently introduced a resolution calling on Congress to affirm its support for providing living wages, good benefits and fair working conditions to paraeducators, classroom assistants, bus drivers, custodial workers and others who are vital to our public education system.
AFSCME’s “I AM Story” podcast has received a nomination for an NAACP Image Award in the “Outstanding Podcast – Limited Series/Short Form” category.

Despite the growing wave of worker organizing across the country, the union membership rate last year ticked down slightly, the U.S.
